|E100-1: Genesis 1 and 2 - Tim Bulkeley|
The first reading in a series covering the 100 essential Bible readings, contains Genesis 1-2. The 50 passages from each Testament together give an overview of the whole Bible. Today we begin at the beginning with the first teo chapters of Genesis. I also dealt with Genesis 1 in a previous post. By the way there is a reading of the passage (if you want to hear rather than see it on PodBible.com). There is an RSS feed for the E100 series only.

|E100-51: John 1:1 - 1:18: Mystery as poetry - Dr Tim Bulkeley|

Even if at first I had to ask what some of the words meant ;) actually understanding the words doesn't end the mystery... John one has the same effect except the words are easy - it's how they are used that's magic :) This brain twisting poetry is also chock full of solid Christian doctrine.
